Skija: Graphics Library for the JVM by JetBrains (Nikita)

1st July 2021 at 7:27am

Skija is a graphics library for the JVM built by Nikita for JetBrains. It uses the 2D graphics library Skia (Chrome, Chrome OS, Firefox, ...) under the hood.

The road to high-quality UI according to Nikita:

  • Graphic library (I believe there is plenty)
  • Window/OS integration library (to feel native)
  • UI Toolkit (text box, buttons, etc.)
